#SooC52 Week 10 – Automobile

Chris Lane / photography / / 2 Comments / Like this

I am working on catching up, as I am still behind. Week 9’s subject was chosen by Bruce. But come to think of it, he hasn’t posted his yet either so I’m not the only one late! Anyway, I don’t have very many really nice vehicles like Eje and I don’t have any cool remote control sports cars like Pete. I thought maybe if it was more like Spring and not Winter, I could take a fun mudding picture or something, but it’s still pretty snowy and icy out. So I thought I’ll stick with smaller toys. I wanted to try my hand at a follow/panning shot. So I had Tristan push these cars and I’d follow it with the lens while taking the photo simultaneously. This is harder than you’d expect! Combine that with how hard it is for a six year old to push two cars at the same speed on the same path! So we did this quite a number of times and trying to keep the other kids out of the way in the process. So here it is:

The Chase

The shot isn’t panning as much as I’d like, as the cars weren’t driving quite as fast as they should, but the position of the cars I think turned out quite good. Your thoughts?

And the rest of the crew:
You can see Eje’s work here.
You can see Pete’s work here.
You can see Bruce’s work here.
You can see John’s work here.
You can see Doug’s work here.
You can see David’s work here.
